Tributes to Country Singer Loretta Lynn Pour In From Fellow Musicians After Her Death


Fellow musicians are mourning the loss of country singer Loretta Lynn.

Singer Reba McEntire posted a tribute to Loretta Lynn on her Instagram and also spoke about the comparison Lynn had to her mother Jacqueline, who died in 2020, according to People.

“Mama and Loretta Lynn were four years apart, Mama being the oldest. They always reminded me a lot of each other. Strong women, who loved their children and were fiercely loyal,” she wrote.

Continuing, she wrote, “Now they’re both in Heaven getting to visit and talk about how they were raised, how different country music is now from what it was when they were young. Sure makes me feel good that Mama went first so she could welcome Loretta into the hollers of heaven!”

McEntire concluded her post by crediting Lynn for paving the way for her and other female musicians.

Singer Dolly Parton also posted a tribute on her Instagram to her “sister” and “friend.”

Additionally, singer Carrie Underwood posted a tribute on her Instagram to Lynn calling her a “cantankerous little pistol” also “friendly and sweet” who was “never afraid to be herself and speak her mind.”

Underwood added, “I am truly grateful to have known such an amazing woman and artist.
Thank you, Loretta, for showing us how it’s done. May you Rest In Peace in the arms of Jesus and add your heavenly voice to the angel choir. Love you!”
